Anthrax - “Smokin'” (Anthems)

Anthrax does an admirable job of covering the Boston classic “Smokin’” for their Anthems EP with some help from Fred Mandel on keys.

Schematic - Color (n.) Inside the Lines

Former MAE frontman Dave Elkins has made his new solo album Color (n.) Inside the Lines available for streaming via his Schematic SoundCloud channel prior to its public release tomorrow. MAE fans that have been following Dave’s progress on the release through his indiegogo funding campaign and his new multi-dimensional/multi-disciplinary studio/management/label/community project Schematic know to expect more of the same catchy, poppy goodness that fueled his former band—lush soundscapes, layers upon layers of vocal harmonies, and interesting time signatures. There are more electronica elements this time around, but they serve to enhance the songs rather than to monopolize the listener’s attention.

I’ve only given it a cursory listen except for the tracks Dave had already given us sneak peeks of, but I think I’m already sold. I plan to plop down my hard-earned cash when it hits the digital download outlets tomorrow morning, and I’ll probably still be bobbing and dancing in my cube like I have for the last hour. Not very metal, huh?!

Give it a listen, and if you like it, purchase Color (n.) Inside the Lines when it becomes available.

Anthrax - “TNT” (Anthems)

Anthrax covering AC/DC’s “TNT” for their eight-track (no, not that kind of eight-track) covers EP Anthems due out March 19. The album also includes covers of:

  • "Anthem" by Rush
  • "Jailbreak" by Thin Lizzy
  • "Smokin’" by Boston
  • "Big Eyes" by Cheap Trick
  • "Keep On Runnin’" by Journey

More Dave Elkins goodness. Here’s the first track from his upcoming Color (n.) Inside the Lines album. It sounds quite a lot like his work with MAE, meaning it’s excellent.

Galactic Cowboys - “Junior’s Farm”

I was wondering just the other day when Anberlin was going to drop new music on us. Seems they debuted this track along with the new single “Someone Anyone” about a month ago, and I completely missed it. The new album Vital is scheduled to hit stores October 16, and if the rest of it is like this, it should be a good one.

The Mars Volta - Zed and Two Naughts

The Mars Volta has posted another new track from the upcoming album Noctourniquet to their SoundCloud channel. I didn’t want to get my hopes up after the first track "The Malkin Jewel" went up, but I think I’m liking the direction they’re going on this album.

Thought it was about time to get heavy again and groove it up a bit. Enjoy!
